Have you ever walked into a lobby and been struck by how beautiful it is? Some lobbies just do that, don’t they? Part of it just may well be that the flooring for lobbies has been done in such a way as to make us feel awe when we see it. Often it’s a real shame that someone would design a tremendous lobby but not even give a second thought to the flooring for that lobby, when a little bit of additional money spent on that flooring for lobbies, could render their lobby into a real showplace.

There are some hotels for example who weigh their choices carefully when shopping for flooring for their lobbies. They understand the importance of making a good impression as soon as the client walks through their door. This is why you often find flooring for lobbies to be made out of expensive and totally elegant marble. Granted marble has its own problems, but surely they are aware of that? For instance even in a lobby, the feeling that marble may bring may be that it is cold. Thus many lobbies which have used marble for their flooring find that they also need to invest in very costly carpeting, just to ward off the cold feeling and bring warmth to their lobby.

Then too, at times someone with marble in their lobby may find out the hard way that marble has absolutely no give if one should perchance have occasion to fall upon it. When someone enters your lobby and falls due to perhaps rain brought in by someone else, or snow that came in off someone else’s shoes, the damage to their bodies tends to be rather extensive.

It is strange too how no one thinks about the fountain that will be placed in the lobby as a possible source of chlorine. Chlorine unfortunately eats marble. Also the care and maintenance of a marble floor is rather extensive. It needs to be dusted, carefully swept and mopped daily in order to retain that shine that everyone loves. Thus the expense of maintenance is rather high to use marble as flooring for lobbies.
